Flying Carpet is tomorrow night at Rififi
Come on out to Flying Carpet, tomorrow (Tues) night at Rififi at 9:45 PM.
I'll be hosting and there are great comics on the bill:
Matt McCarthy (just taped a set for Comedy Central's Live at Gotham and he was also at the Montreal Just For Laughs festival)
Jesse Popp (he's been on Comedy Central's Premium Blend and cohosts the Beauty Bar show)
Jamie Lee (VH1 Best Night Ever and Diamonds in the Fluff show)
Luke Thayer as Tony Francione, The New York Sport Guru ("Loves this city baby, and isn't afraid to shed a tear for Big Blue")
Joe Powers (cohost of Morrison Motel)
Phil O'Reilly (elder statesman of laughs, saw this guy at a mic and said you have to do my show...imagine your dad or grandpa doing jokes about Tupac, but weirder and funnier)
And it's free too.
